This week's Thursday Movie Picks is Movies with Strong Female Character(s) [Suggested by Birgit]

---

Today's theme is by Birgit

Volver (2006)
A great movie with an almost all female cast about family and secrets. When something happens to her daughter, Raimunda holds it together and fixes the situation as she is also confronted with the truth of her mother's death.

The Hunger Games (2012-2015)
Katniss - the girl did take the place of her sister and survived two Hunger Games.

Edge of Tomorrow (2014)
Rita Vrataski - the warrior that lead the victory in one of the battles against an alien race. Live, die, repeat. You've got to be brave to do that and without the guidance that Cage got.

Thursday Movie Picks #174: An Adaptation (of a book, comic, game etc that hasn't been adapted) You Want to See

This week's Thursday Movie Picks is An Adaptation (of a book, comic, game etc that hasn't been adapted) You Want to See 

---

Ok I love today's theme because I have often thought...hey I would like to see a movie of that. My Picks are going to be all books, all standalone titles (meaning not part of a series).


YA Books

Looking for Alaska by John Green
This is the only book by John Green (you may have heard of his other books: The Fault in Our Stars and Paper Towns which have been made into movies) that I've read and I love it.  Apparently I read somewhere that the movie at some point was in the works but somewhere along the line it fell through or something...I'm not sure if it's back on, which is why it's on this list. The gist: believing he has led a boring existence, a teenage boy decides to go to a boarding school where things are perhaps less boring. There he falls for one of the girls in his group of friends, called Alaska.

The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart
This one is so much fun. Frankie is witty and smart, but has been treated as being less smart or excluded for being a girl. Realising that in the real world the ruling elite are mostly from the old boys club; she secretly infiltrates her school's all boys secret society and outwits them...basically there a lot of amazing pranks involved.

Stolen: A Letter to My Captor by Lucy Christopher
16 year old Gemma is drugged and kidnapped from Bangkok Airport and taken to the Australian Outback. The story is told in letter form from Gemma to Ty, her captor, as she reflects on what has happened to her from the moment she saw him. But here's the thing, as you read, you don't really know if Gemma has escaped, is still a captive or worse...until the very end of her letter of course.  Anyway there had been news that there was going to be a movie, but it has been a year or perhaps more since the news; it has been very quiet. Here's hoping it is still happening.



Adult Books

Survivor by Chuck Palahniuk
If you've seen Fight Club, or read Palahniuk's books than you sort of know what to expect. His characters tend to be a bit or a lot nutty. In Survivor, the main character is Tender Branson, the last surviving member of a cult. The book opens with him speaking into a flight recorder of an empty plane. He plans to tell his life story, before the plane crashes. The story is all sort of crazy with a lot of dark humor, I'm very curious what a movie of it would look like.

Local Girl Missing by Claire Douglas
I've been reading quite a lot of thrillers lately and this is one of the better ones. The gist: 21 year old Sophie goes missing 18 years ago and her best friend, Frankie, is haunted over what happened to her. When Frankie gets a call from Sophie's brother, now a local newspaper editor, that her remains may have been found, Frankie goes back to her hometown to find out if it's really Sophie. The story is also a little spooky which I like. I don't even remember where it is set, but I imagine the movie would have a lot rain and very misty/foggy.

Thursday Movie Picks #173: A Stranger

This week's Thursday Movie Picks is A Stranger


---



This is I think one of those more unique sort of theme unlike say remakes or vampire movies...so I'm curious as to what movies end up on everyone's list today. Anyway here's mine, the bottom two picks are the ones that I like.

Sommersby (1993)
I've seen this at least twice, but this is one of those movies where I retain very little of what happens other than the basic plot and a bit of the ending. A man returns home after the American Civil War, but his wife suspects he is an imposter.

Stoker (2013)
After India's father dies, an uncle she never knew existed comes to live with her and her mother. I've picked this movie so many times before but here it is again because it fits so well and also a favourite of mine. A beautifully shot psychological thriller.

The Guest (2014)
A man visits the family of a fallen soldier and claims to have served with him. He's so nice and charming that the family lets him stay with them. The only roles I had seen Dan Stevens play prior to seeing this were all middle/upper class British guys and this was such a departure; he got really physically fit and plays an American with a southern accent. Also you'd never think the guy who was cousin Matthew could do sinister, but yeah Dan Stevens was so so good in this. Of course this year there was Legion, where he got to play crazy as well...which were the best bits of the very inconsistent TV Show.

Thursday Movie Picks #172: Halloween/Television Edition: Horror


Hello there and welcome to Thursday Movie Picks a weekly series where you share three to five  movie picks each Thursday. The rules are simple simple: Each week there is a topic for you to create a list of movies and tell us why you chose them. For further details visit the series main page here.

This week's Thursday Movie Picks is Halloween/Television Edition: Horror

---


Hey it's October and the whole of this month I'm running the Halloween Edition. Take a look at what's in store for the rest of the weeks.

October 5 - Halloween Edition: Masks
October 12 - Halloween Edition: Dolls
October 19 - Halloween Edition: Body Horror [Suggested by Myerla]
October 26 - Halloween/Television Edition: Horror 

First ever Halloween/Television edition, this is going to be fun. I'm picking favourites.

Being Human (2008-2013)
I feel like I have talked about this series somewhere here before, but since this is the first TV horror theme, I'm not quite sure when I would have. So anyway the gist, this UK series follows a ghost, a werewolf and a vampire sharing an apartment and them trying to hold on to their humanity. I have to admit, that plot summary sounded so so stupid the first time I heard it, but I had heard good reviews so I gave it a try and turns out I love it (there are five seasons, but I have only seen 3). It's a horror/drama series that is at times funny and often just so sad as well. If you like American Werewolf in London, definitely give it a try, even how the werewolf got turned reminds me a lot of that movie. 

Misfits (2009-2013)
This one follows 5 juvenile delinquents (about late teens/early 20-ish youths) who while doing community service gets hit by lightning during a freak storm and get some special powers. I know this sounds more like a superhero sort of series...it sort of is and sort of not just that too as it's mostly about characters trying to get a handle on their own powers; many can't control it which leads to disastrous horrifying consequences. Anyway love this series. Even when it wasn't that great in season 4/5 it was still pretty good. Like Being Human, it just balances drama with horror and comedy elements really well. And like Being Human, Misfit is also getting a American remake...so go and watch the original first.

Bates Motel  (2013-2017)
I have not seen the last season yet, but like the first three seasons. The series is a contemporary prequel to Psycho. In the first season, teenage Norman Bates and his mother is new in town and have just opened the Bates Motel. We see glimpses of the man Norman would become as the series progress and throughout it there's this sense of dread that Norman is going to destroy everyone around him.

The Vampire Diaries (2009-2017)
The gist, two vampire brothers, Stefan and Damon, vie for the affections of a human girl Elena, who looks very much like a girl they used to know more than a hundred years ago. It's a teen soap with vampires - my guess is most people won't give this a chance. Which is a pity, this series is soo much fun, totally bingeable. I've seen all the seasons except the last, and I think it's been consistently good. The world building and the mythology it creates for all the supernatural characters are great. Favourite character probably has to be Damon, the so-called bad brother, because he is so consistent, consistently selfish that is that even when he does a good, seemingly selfless deed, he does so because it benefits him to do so...and also, he has the best lines.

So that's it...my three picks. What movies made your list today?

Hey it's October and the whole of this month I'm running the Halloween Edition. Take a look at what's in store for the rest of the weeks.

October 5 - Halloween Edition: Masks
October 12 - Halloween Edition: Dolls
October 19 - Halloween Edition: Body Horror [Suggested by Myerla]
October 26 - Halloween/Television Edition: Horror 

This week's theme is one from Myerla

Black Swan (2010)
I think there were a few in these, one was Nina's broken nail, then there was feather/thorn thing and then there was also the creepy scene with the ex prima ballerina, I can't remember what happen but I think it also had a body horror scene.

Alien
Don't know which Alien movie I saw, just that I saw it when I was very young and was thoroughly freaked out and have not seen an Alien movie after.

The Fly (1986)
Another one where I saw it very young, under ten, freaked me out, never going to see it again.

An American Werewolf in London (1981)
This is here of course, like The Fly for the transformation scenes. Also if you like werewolf movies, this is one of the good ones.

October 5 - Halloween Edition: Masks
October 12 - Halloween Edition: Dolls
October 19 - Halloween Edition: Body Horror [Suggested by Myerla]
October 26 - Halloween/Television Edition: Horror 

This is a boring week; I thought I had seen a lot more movies with scary dolls but apparently I haven't, so my list is pathetic. When I googled scary doll movies, there aren't that many titles either and about half of them are Chucky movies.

Chucky
I think I saw the original and one of the sequels. Can't remember any of the plot details.

Annabelle
I thought it was an ok movie, but apparently not a lot of people like it.

October 19 - Halloween Edition: Body Horror [Suggested by Myerla]
October 26 - Halloween/Television Edition: Horror

 

It's the 4th annual Halloween Edition! Yep we've done four rounds of these already! Today's theme is masks.
  

Scream (1996-2011)
I never got the appeal of the Scream movies when I saw them a long time ago. I've recently rewatched the first three Scream movies and I get it now. I still haven't watch most of the movies if not all that Scream references, but I know enough of them now, to get what it's trying to reference.

You're Next (2011)
Hmm...I think if you like Scream, I'm guessing you would like this too. It's a clever horror thriller that flips the home invasion plot.

The Purge (2013)
The doll like masks and preppy outfits of the tormentors in this one were just creepy.

Thursday Movie Picks #168: TMP Television Edition - Family



Hello there and welcome to Thursday Movie Picks a weekly series where you share movie picks each Thursday. The rules are simple: based on the theme of the week pick three to five movies and tell us why you picked them. For further details and the schedule visit the series main page here.

---

This week's Thursday Movie Picks is TMP Television Edition - Family

---

I had to think about this quite a bit. For some reason I'm not quite remembering as many Family TV shows that I've probably seen. Here are the ones that I do remember and love.

Jane the Virgin (2014 - )  
The series follows Jane, who get mistakenly artificially inseminated. So ignore the lame basic premise and super awful title that I'm sure has driven some potential viewers away...I almost didn't watch it too. This series is so so good. It's sweet, it's funny, it has fun with itself with the whole telenovella stuff...it really has a good sense of humor and it is such a heartwarming dramedy. This is also the only family friendly series depicting a family today.

Peaky Blinders (2013 - )
Love this series. I was one of my picks for the period drama TV series theme. The gist - set after World War 1, it follows the fictional Shelby family as they run their legitimate and criminal business. The series feels like a modern crime drama series with its pacing and style...that and the modern rock music used throughout that fits in so well.
 
Animal Kingdom (2016 - ) 
The gist: when a teen boy's mom dies, he goes to live with the family he has never met: grandma and four uncles who all lead a life of crime specializing in heists. If you've seen Animal Kingdom the movie and like it or love Peaky Blinders, you should definitely check out Animal Kingdom the TV series. I enjoyed the first season, but I think part of me was also preoccupied in comparing the movie and the TV series. However, the second series has gone way past the timeline/material depicted in the movie that it was fun seeing what new stuff the series was coming up with. Thus I found the second season a much more addictive watch, especially to see where everyone's alliance lies

---

This week's Thursday Movie Picks is Just Not Funny Comedies

---

One of those genres where I often go...what...people like this? They found this funny? It could be a cultural/language thing? Comedy is just one of those genres that doesn't translate well. 

The Hangover (2009)
Just didn't find it that funny. Maybe it appeals more to guys?
 
Wedding Crashers (2005)
I've watched it again recently. Still feel pretty much the same way as The Hangover.

Ace Ventura (1994/1995)
Don't know which one I saw (probably both of them?) thought it was one of the worst things I had ever seen. So not a fan of slapstick/physical comedy.

Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy (2004)
Like I think I get it...like we're suppose to laugh at these ridiculous sexist fools in the seventies and say can't believe these things used to happen...except it still does and I saw this in late October early November of last year, so yeah, could not find it funny.

This week's Thursday Movie Picks is Financial World

---

I'm going sans computer today so it will have to be another short post. Plus today is one of those what-was-I-thinking sort of theme. I have only watched 3 movies about the financial world so here they all are.

Wall Street (1987)
I remember nothing other than yeah it was an entertaining movie. Question - is the sequel worth a watch?
 
Margin Call (2011)
It follows an investment bank in a 24 hour period as they realise their assets are junk and tries to quickly sell them off before the rest of the world finds it too. Like it's so terrible...a lot of people made a lot of money selling junk. Anyway the movie was really good.

Big Short (2015)
It attempts to tell a story and explain the financial crisis to a layperson...which it does decently I think.

This week's Thursday Movie Picks is Animated Films Geared Towards Adults [Suggested by Brittani Burnham]

---


Today's theme is a suggestion from Brittani. I don't watch a lot of animated films so this is a tough week for me so I'm going to do a real quick one.

Persepolis (2007)
If you've read the graphic novel and like it, you'll probably like the movie too, it looks very much like the novel.
 
Fantastic Mr. Fox (2009)
I don't remember much of the story other than I like it and that it is very Wes Anderson in it's quirkiness. If you like his movies, you'll probably like this one too.
 
The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)
Another stop motion animation and it's also a musical. I love how it looks and the songs in this are pretty awesome as well.

Thursday Movie Picks #164: TMP Television Edition - High School



Hello there and welcome to Thursday Movie Picks a weekly series where you share movie picks each Thursday. The rules are simple: based on the theme of the week pick three to five movies and tell us why you picked them. For further details and the schedule visit the series main page here.

---

This week's Thursday Movie Picks is TMP Television Edition - High School

---




I still do enjoy high school series, they're light and fun and offers a break from some of the more gloomy serious dramas. Here are the ones I like past and present.

Beverly Hills, 90210 (1990–2000)
This was probably the first high school series I saw. I was very very young when I saw this, but I do remember liking it a lot. I actually didn't know it was on air for so long, I think I only saw it up until the end of high-school for the major characters.
 
The O.C. (2003–2007)
I love love the O.C. I saw the first season again recently, yes its soapy but I still love it. It was the series that introduced me to the San Diego Comic Con, and a few years later the con became this huge media machine. I also think it's the high-school series with the best soundtrack. I you haven't listened yet, go check it out on Spotify. ♫ C-A-L-I-F-O-R-N-I-A here we come !!!
 
Gossip Girl (2007–2012)
Totally soapy, but soo fun. Also geek me love that all its episode titles, other than the pilot, are fun twist on movie titles.

Degrassi: Next Class (2016 – )
I've never seen the other Degrassi series other than this new spinoff which is on Netflix and I really like it. It feels very current with its story lines, decent acting and has the most diverse cast than any of the high school series I've ever seen.

Riverdale (2017– )
While I don't love love it, I like that they took the Archie comic that we know and made it into small town mystery that's moody and gloomy. I just wish it's a little better written and performed. However, the mystery is interesting enough so I will keep on watching.

Bonus

Freaks and Geeks (1999–2000)  
I saw this again recently and it's such a pity that it was canceled just after one season because I think it really is one the best high school series. It's 80's setting was fun and the show itself is often very funny.

Thursday Movie Picks #163: The Stage



Hello there and welcome to Thursday Movie Picks a weekly series where you share movie picks each Thursday. The rules are simple: based on the theme of the week pick three to five movies and tell us why you picked them. For further details and the schedule visit the series main page here.

This week's Thursday Movie Picks is The Stage

---




I thought this week was the last week of the month and was preparing a list of TV shows to pick, but nope, this month is a 5 week month, so it's still a movie pick and it's The Stage.

Moulin Rouge! (2001)
I've picked this a few times before for other themes because I love love this movie! Set in the late 19th century it's a musical about a writer and courtesan falling in love at the Moulin Rouge as they work on a musical together.
 
Anna Karenina (2012)
I didn't love the movie, but I appreciated the way it was presented which was like a stage play. Most of the scenes take place indoors in like a theater, making full use of it so we'd see the actors act on the stage as well as the auditorium area. Doors would open to a new area of the theater or props would move around to introduce a new scene and setting; it's pretty amazing to look at, how the story flows from one scene to the next.
 
Black Swan (2010)
I've never seen an actual ballet performances before so I have nothing to compare it to, but I thought the Swan Lake scenes the short one at the start and the one at the end was just so beautiful. In the middle of that we follow Nina, the lead ballerina as she struggles with her sanity where her own life becomes a sort of manifestation of Swan Lake.

The Phantom of the Opera (2004)
I didn't love it the first time I saw it, however the second time I sort of do. They probably could have gone with an actor with a more stronger commanding voice for the Phantom, but Gerard Butler wasn't bad, certainly not like Russell Crowe in Les Misérables. My favourite scene is probably the masquerade where they had this gorgeous lavish sequence of finely dressed people all dancing.

Thursday Movie Picks #162: Rescue



Hello there and welcome to Thursday Movie Picks a weekly series where you share movie picks each Thursday. The rules are simple: based on the theme of the week pick three to five movies and tell us why you picked them. For further details and the schedule visit the series main page here.


---

This week's Thursday Movie Picks is Rescue

---



This week's theme is Rescue. Hard week for picks today, so I'm just gonna do a quick one.

San Andreas (2015)
After an earthquake, a rescue helicopter pilot, played by Dwayne Johnson, makes a journey to search and rescue his daughter. This movie was just a super dumb disaster movie. Skip it. 

Captain Phillips (2013)
It's about a cargo ship that was hijacked by Somali pirates, with Tom Hanks in the title role. If I remember correctly, most of the movie it was mostly of the captain and crew trying to survive the hijacking...the rescue bits came only near the end. Overall an interesting, although not really a memorable movie for me.

The Perfect Storm (2000)
I saw this again recently. I think it's a decent disaster movie and the storm was scary. I pretty much had forgotten that this came out way before the Deadliest Catch series, so the typical fisherman's day at sea haven't really been seen by most; how dangerous it can be even without a storm. Anyway, I was fascinated that rescue helicopters actually go out in such volatile storms, I would have thought helicopters were worst off at weathering it than the stranded ships.
